I was in GDL this past November but looking to go back to MX because there are many available flights from LAX. Since I have seen GDL for a few days during my past trip, I am looking taking a flight to GDL and then travel to other cities straight from the airport. However, I cannot decide with regard to logistical issues.
My interests lean toward visiting museums and experiencing colonial cities vs. spending time at a large beach resort. I am thinking of the following scenarios.
1: Morelia and Lake Chapala.
2: San Luis Potosi
I am not too particularly crazy about the third option but I believe that Puerto Vallarta does have an old historic core. As for options 1 and 2, I am wondering which one makes more sense in terms of the ease of getting there and back to GDL for the return flight home.
If you have been to any of the three places aforementioned (departing from Guadalajara or its airport), please share your opinions. Many thanks in advance. It seems that it takes about 4 hours by bus to any of these places.
